The radical hero

Nobody wants to be the hero,
The first in line to die,
Fade into the background,
Be a zero,
That's what they tell you,
All your life,
Shy away from,
The radical spotlight,
As far as you can,
From the harsh sights,
Pretend not to see injustice,
Pretend not to admit to fear,
So nobody grows up a hero,
Because nobody wants,
To be in jail.
